Shattered Hopes:

It was a very sad experience for Taiye when he visited the US embassy in Nigeria for a visa appointment.

Taiye had gotten admission in a university in the US for a masters programme. He was very excited as the programme comes with scholarship that covers his tuition, accommodation and feeding.

However, his excitement was to be cut short when he visited the US embassy for an appointment.

When he got there, he saw a long queue of persons who had equally come for the same reasons.

However, Taiye thought that having gotten an admission into a foreign university in US, that his case would be sorted out with urgency.

This was because, the programme was meant to commence in the following two months.

But he got the greatest frustration of his life when he was told that slots for visa appointments for the year was already overdue.

He was told that the available window was in about 18 months. That’s preposterous! Does it mean he was going to miss this opportunity to travel to the US and gain the education?

Well, Taiye’s case is just one among the thousands of similar cases that many Nigerians are going through.

But Nigerians are not the only ones having their hopes shattered in such manner.

In Mumbai, India, it takes an Indian about 635 days and 596 days in Delhi to get a US visa appointment. This is way gloomier than even in Nigeria.
